This pattern was written with the advanced intermediate crocheter who loves the look for C2C crochet but is not ready for the decrease part. You get the basics of C2C so that you can get comfortable with working corner to corner. To watch the video on how to create the row 48 of the Elisabeth Triangle Scarf tap here.

Time to learn the basics of Corner to Corner!
We’re going to go over the basic skills you need to corner to corner crochet, including how to increase and decrease.
Before we start you must know that at the beginning of each row, you are either increasing or decreasing. However, in my pattern for there will be a row where you stop increasing and that’s where we will create the straight edge of the scarf. This is for my pattern only, since we do not decrease at all in the Elisabeth Triangle Scarf.
Increasing in Corner to Corner Crochet
You will be increasing by one tile (little square) in each diagonal row in C2C crochet. Once you’ve reached the desired width, you’ll start decreasing. If you are working with a rectangle C2C crochet pattern, you will be increasing on one side while you are decreasing on the other to create the rectangular shape.
Decreasing in Corner to Corner Crochet
Once you’ve reached the widest or tallest part of your pattern, you’ll start to decrease. Decreasing only means, you are no longer chaining 6 at the beginning of your rows. Instead, you’ll be slip stitching at the top of the first 3 double crochet stitches of the previous row to keep the row even.
